Locate Staffing and On-Site Solutions Earns WRC Certification
Locate Staffing and On-Site Solutions announced today that they have now been awarded Workers' Compensation Risk Certification (WRC).
The WRC program recognizes staffing companies that practice best in class risk management to reduce workplace injuries and related costs. WRC certified companies maintain that a focus on safety and risk management protects their employees while offering a higher level of service to clients.
“Safety and risk management are important areas of focus for our clients” says Janelle Koren, owner and CEO of both Locate Staffing and On-Site Solutions. “This certification not only shows that we are an expert in these areas, but also that we are a valuable partner to work with to ensure safety in the workplace.”
Locate Staffing and On-Site Solutions are the only staffing agencies headquartered in Wisconsin that hold this WRC certification.
To be awarded certification, companies undergo a thorough review of their operational practices as they apply to hiring and screening, substance abuse, talent matching, employee orientation, client safety evaluations and partnerships, incident investigations and corrective measures, and return-to-work programs. The results are compared against a system of best practices developed by an advisory council of insurance carriers, insurance brokers, and staffing industry risk managers.
Information about WRC certification is published on the program's Web site at staffingWRCs.com.

So, how does that translate to building better workplace relationships? Unsurprisingly we pay extra attention to the things that spark our interest. In fact, it is a foundation to any relationship; an entry to the remaining characteristics pertaining to positive workplace relationships. Here are five other characteristics to reference -

• Have people skills; good relationships start with good people skills. This can range from communication to conflict resolution; know how to deal with weakness and turn it into a positive (and positivity is contagious!).
• Take the time to build the relationship; this means, face to face interaction. A quick cup of coffee or conversation regarding upcoming weekend plans could be a great starting point.
• Be appreciative; do you put more effort into something when you know your work is appreciated? We all do, make the people around you feel that same way.
